So this card is basically +10 life for 3 mana. That's pretty nice in itself.

It doesn't combine with leeches, annoyingly enough. If Leeches dealt life loss as opposed to damage, then it would, but it deals damage, which means it'll deal the poison counters right back.

Still, combos with Melira or Death's Shadow (or, under the right circumstances, Near Death Experience) so it could be funny. Otherwise, it's just a fun little stall tactic, especially if you've got enough lifegain to get back up after taking the odd poison counter (pray they don't have proliferate though).

Though, odd question, how does this work with damage being dealt. I mean, let's say you're brought down to below 0 by combat damage. Since all the damage is dealt at the same time, wouldn't it not register you as 0 until after all the combat damage is dealt. IE that combat phase drags you down to 0 and THEN this card kicks in after combat is over?

It's worth thinking about.

well actually this does combo with Melira, Sylvok Outcast because Phyrexian Unlife sais "As long as you have 0 or less life, all damage is dealt to you as though its source had infect." but Melira, Sylvok Outcast sais "You cant get poison counters" So the lightning bolt bolts you for 3 poison and you never receive them

Now all that phyrexian mana life loss doesn't seem so bad.

Stick this in a deck with Delaying Shield. That'd be fun.

Makes a fun combo with Phyrexian Arena.

This card doesn't allow you to pay life when at 0 or less, so it doesn't really combo with anything that requires life payment unless going to exactly 0 works for it

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
